    APT Texas is pleased to have Anna Nau, PhD, APT Texas Regional Director and Senior Associate & Architectural Conservator with Ford, Powell & Carson Architects and Planners, Inc. present "The Stabilization of Mission Concepcion's Masonry Dome" via online Zoom lecture on October 28.

    The dome of the mid-eighteenth-century church of Mission Concepcion, part of the San Antonio Missions UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the oldest, unreconstructed masonry dome in the United States. In 2017, moisture damage and cracking at the exterior plaster of the dome led to a year long structural monitoring program, followed by more detailed non-destructive evaluation and analysis that indicated the need for immediate structural intervention. Beginning in January 2020, under the direction of Ford, Powell & Carson Architects and Sparks Engineering, the dome underwent a complex stabilization and repair project. This talk will provide an overview of the stabilization treatment approach, the masonry and plaster repair methods employed, and the challenges and lessons learned during this unique project.

    Ruregold is a structural stucco that may be applied to both masonry and concrete to strengthen and stabilize existing and new structures. Ruregold may be utilized for both interior and exterior applications. As easily applied as stucco, it has been used in Europe for over 20 years. It is also recommended for pre and post-seismic applications. Its Class A fire rating makes it ideal for interior work. Code approved ESR3265, ACI 549, and NYC OTCR 2017-015 .
